There are three guys of different cultures who had known each other since the third grade. These guys have been supportive of one another ever since then. If you violate anyone of them, you have violated all of them, and the consequences could be severe. This was loyalty at its best. They were inseparable.

Now in their twenties, the guys have developed some history among themselves. Experiencing tragedy, loss of life, breakups, etc. Being supportive when it was necessary. At this time in their lives, they now have families and responsibilities that are required of them. They all have conflicting schedules, which has not allowed them to see each other as much as they would have liked to. They have not had the opportunity to sit down together to have a cold beer in quite some time. One particular spring day, they found the time. Communicating back and forth with each other, they finally made plans to all meet at one of the other’s house, telling their significant others not to include them in any plans that Friday night. This night was set aside for the trio.

Because of the flexibility of their schedules, two of the three were able to leave work early, and they both agreed to meet up at the local bar before heading to the house. Upon seeing each other, the two of them hugged and gave a stern fist bump. They start a tab, selecting some of the finest liquor that was available at the bar. Hanging out, reminiscing on their high school years. Close to two hours have passed. Both of them decided to pay their tabs and head over to the house. On their way to the house, they stopped at the local convenience store to grab a case of beer, some chips, peanuts, and a few scratch-off lottery tickets. The last of the three would meet them at the house after he got off work and went home to take a shower. It was early in the evening when the two men arrived at the house. It wouldn’t be until late evening when the third guy showed up. When he finally did, it was the usual hugging and fist bumps all over again. This was their home away from home.

By this time, the two men who arrived first had a four-beer head start, and there was some catching up to do. So he goes to the fridge and grabs him a couple of cold ones. The trio enjoyed each other’s company as the evening progressed. Utilizing the valuable time spent, they engage in watching a basketball game on the big screen. There was no one else there except the three. They were exclusive to the outside world. Later, they all were feeling a good buzz from the beer and liquor they consumed throughout the day and night, laughing and enjoying themselves to the fullest. There was a shift of events nonetheless. Something went wrong inside… Very wrong!!

“Queen of Suspense” Mary Higgins Clark and Alafair Burke are back with their fifth enthralling mystery in the New York Times bestselling Under Suspicion series; You Don’t Own Me finds television producer Laurie Moran stopping at nothing to solve the murder of a celebrity doctor—even as she finds herself in grave danger as a mysterious stalker plots his next move.

When we last saw Laurie Moran, she had recently become engaged to her show’s former host, Alex Buckley. Since then, the two have been happily planning a summer wedding and honeymoon, preparing for Alex’s confirmation to a federal judicial appointment, and searching for the perfect New York City home for their new life together.

But then Laurie is approached by Robert and Cynthia Bell, parents of Dr. Martin Bell, a famously charming and talented physician who was shot dead as he pulled into the driveway of his Greenwich Village carriage house five years ago. The Bells are sure that Martin’s disgraced and erratic wife, Kendra, carried out the murder. Determined to prove Kendra’s guilt and win custody over their grandchildren, they plead with Laurie to feature their son’s case on “Under Suspicion,” ensuring her that Kendra is willing to cooperate.

Kendra has lived under a blanket of suspicion since Martin’s death, with the tabloid media depicting her as a secretive, mentally unstable gold-digger. Laurie’s show is a chance for her to clear her name. But unbeknownst to the Bells, Kendra has already refused once before to go forward with a re-investigation of her husband’s murder, and her statements to the contrary only add to the appearance of guilt.

But once Laurie dives into the case, she learns that Martin wasn’t the picture-perfect husband, father, and doctor he appeared to be and was carrying secrets of his own. And what does the web of lies ensnaring the Bell family have to do with a dangerous stranger, who gazes at Laurie from afar and thinks, She is actually quite a lovely girl, I’m sure she’s going to be missed…?

You Don’t Own Me is the perfect, exhilarating follow up to the bestselling Every Breath You Take. The “Queen of Suspense” Mary Higgins Clark and her dazzling partner-in-crime Alafair Burke have devised another riveting page-turner.
